List an Item

Sell

New around here? Okay, here's how it works. College student or not, first you have to sign up.

Sign Up

Don't stress. Signing up is no biggie- and it's free. Just choose a username, password and agree to our terms of service. Now you'll be able to sell your stuff, all while supporting your college or university.

List an Item

Once you've signed up, all you need to list an item is a title, description and a couple of great pics. It's a quick and easy process that only takes about 2-3 minutes. You will only be charged a flat fee of $1.00 per listing. That's all you will ever pay to sell an item (except for Autos, Marine & Real Estate, please read below).

Selling an Item

As a seller you get to choose what payment methods you accept. We recommend PayPal- it facilitates instant payment and could offer anti-fraud protection. When an item sells, both the buyer and seller are sent emails with the transaction details included. You will only be charged a flat fee of $1.00 per listing, EXCEPT for Autos, Marine & Real Estate. All categories require a ONE-TIME listing fee. Nope  we don't take any commission off the product sold. And check this out- your listing remains up on our site until it sells, or you choose to remove the listing.

Side Note: Just in case your stuff is sold offline, what we do is remove the product from our site if it hasn't sold in three months. But, we'll notify you before the three months are up, so you can keep listing it for free! And you can continue renewing your listing for as long as needed.

Fees

It's not rocket science: it only costs $1.00 to list an item on collegegaragesale.com. Once you list an item, it stays up until it sells (or you choose to remove it). There are no monthly listing fees like on other sites.

And, we give 10% of the listing fee you pay collegegaragesale.com to the college or university of your choice. We don't take 10% of your sale price and give this to your school, only the listing fee. A sale on collegegaragesale.com occurs between two individuals outside of our site. We're not involved in the collection of money for any sold items (between a buyer and seller).

Important Exceptions

Autos, Marine & Real Estate listings are also one-time charges. You pay $10.00 to list an Autos and Marine; you pay $20.00 for a listing in Real Estate (properties and homes). It's that simple. And again, your listing stays up until you sell it (renewable every 3 months for free; see above explanation for complete details)! There are no additional charges when you sell your product in these categories.

  1. Also, there are NO listing fees for any items listed through a school's garage sale. That means if a campus organization needs to raise some cash, you can list your item in their garage sale for free. It's just another way we are glad to help your group or organization raise money!

Non-paying Buyers

If a buyer doesn't pay for the item they purchased, we will refund you the listing fee and allow you to re-list it for free.
